11:02pm
but a spokesperson tells us the base has been involved in ground water remediation since 1992 in information it relaid to the newspapers. at the meeting, the restoration board would not talk to newspapers but the base was starting an archievl study designing to review records back to the '40s to see what chemicals and toxins might have been used and where, a study that could take years. virginia alfonno says she's not sure she has that kind of time. >> i have a cancer that has no cure. i can live maybe five years or 20 years. i don't know, depends on how long they keep going and how many studies i get into to hang in there, but i don't know if i've got five years to get an answer, and i would like to see them work a lot faster than this. this is ridiculous. >> reporter: now, meanwhile, the frederic health department has been trying to figure out if there's really a cancer clustener this area. the preliminary results of the study are due out october 4th. brian. >> roz plater reporting live in

year in savings. he's spreading his message saying the less we consume, the more we'll have for ourselves and future generations. melanie alnwick, fox news. do you got one of these? afternoon storms dumping hail on parts of our region this first day of fall. fox5 viewers sent us a picture of what rolled through their ground in leesburg. it almost looks like a dusting of snow. >> don't say that. >> don't go there, brian. >> we're still scarred from the blizzard. >> definitely for sure. it's hard to believe we're already changing to fall after a winter like that. those storms had a lot of energy with them and the lightning show was impressive too. they're just about out of here. we don't have any lightning showing up in our area but the storms are slow to weak enen on
11:18pm
the eastern shore. there's not much going on on the d.c. area. to the shore you can see the big line of storms with a lot of lightning. that extends all the way out to the cape may area and there could be one or two more showers still over on the allegheny front later tonight. we have a stalled front to the north and that's where the energy is coming from. max hd satellite and radar puts it into motion. we'll show you what's going on with this on the wider view. our front is stalled right here, just a couple more showers out here in western maryland but i don't think those will make it into d.c.. the heat did make it into d.c. in a big way. it was 95 degrees here, up to our north it was in the 70s. that's where the front is. that's where it's going to stay tomorrow as we look at some of the high temperatures across the nation, you can see it was still very steamy across the ohio and tennessee valley and down through the deep south.
11:19pm
but we're starting to see signs of cooler temperatures, more fall-like temperatures. minneapolis 64 degrees, bismarck, 65. eventually that gets here, but we have to wait until saturday before this edge of heat goes away. 68 in monases. d.c. close to 80 at this 11:00 hour. it's officially fall, that just happened a couple of minutes ago. meanwhile to the north the stalled frontal system will stay there tomorrow and we are looking at another hot day tomorrow. for tonight, partly cloudy, mild overnight, about 71 degrees. tomorrow back up to 91 degrees. maybe a pop of up storm. 92 tomorrow, friday is another scorcher at 94. then we get a little bit more reasonable on saturday at 85 and really feeling like fall on sunday, 76 degrees. now, i want you to see that the
11:20pm
frontal boundary is just stalled to the north during the day tomorrow so it keeps us in the hot air. eventually we'll see this front getting another bit of a push, it will move all the way up into upstate new york and eventually a stronger front will come through friday night and saturday. we believe that second front that rolls through friday night and saturday will come through dry just for a couple of clouds here and there. that's where we'll begin to see the temperatures coming on it. there's the low that will drag us closer, and after it comes through friday night, temperatures will get much more reasonable around here. here's the 5-day forecast, where you talk about some hot days, and we also eventually think we'll have a couple of showers on sunday. this is still kind of questionable every time we look at a new run of the model guidance, it changes just a little bit but we think there will be some showers lurking in the mid atlantic. not sure they'll be into d.c.. 76 on monday so at least that cooler air will feel good and we could sure use some rain if we

11:24pm
red-redskins could go with hour or brown who's played tackle this season. today he took lefts at both right and left tackle. >> i think we've had a pretty good situation. jamalplayed the left side. he can play the left or right sides. that's a big advantage for us if trent's not able to go, but hopefully he will be. >> back to sunday on the play that possibly decided between the redskins winning or losing. over dowdy, it's the game-tying touchdown. afterwards, hall said he wasn't surprised dowdy failed to make the play and that he, hall, would cover top regardless of jim haslet's scheme. today, haslet and dowdy both responded. >> he said what we already know so i don't think it bothers anybody on the defense. i think it sounds like a shock because it seems like a slight
11:25pm
to the other guys on the team but it's not. >> i think he's playing high level right now and doing a heck of the job and i think there's times you can do that on formation and other times you can't. >> yesterday, larry johnson for the redskins cited the need to add a special teams player against the rams. running back chad simpson was added to fill johnson's roster spot. >> i really didn't see that coming. i didn't see that coming and i don't think anyone saw that coming, so especially when you're trying to get -- you know, get things going in the running game, with the running back of his caliber and the things hooez he's been able to do and what we want to do here, i think you can work that so that it will work out in our favorite. >> today, mcnabb was asked about the eagles decision to go with michael vick over kevin cobb. mcnabb says he was part of the quarterback controversy for 11

years in philly. he added, i guess it never stops. nats lead 1-0. roger bernadinna getting a little horizontal with his gloves, great play for the defensive player of the game, bottom 7th. nats out 3-2, espinosa, hits a pitch to right field and clears the game winning 2-run home run. nats win 4-3. oreioles fall to the red sox 6-1. hockey people, making their preseason debut. second period, johansen dropped it to hend rick, who buries the first of three goals on the night. later second period, caps on the power play, alexander stemmon to thomas sliceman who scores the first of his two goals. they defeat the blue jackets 6-2. here we go again. in the net tonight and
